Aaron Task writes disinformation spin for the Fed

Go Away Federal Reserve System!

Here’s where his article appears at yahoo:

“No, the Fed Does NOT ‘Print Money’: Just Explain It”:

http://finance.yahoo.com/blogs/daily-ticker/no-fed-does-not-print-money-just-explain-150433185.html

This is from the “Give Me A Break” Department.

In the third paragraph, the guy couldn’t help but let slip why they are publishing this article now, probably setting the stage for a bit of another illusionist’s deceit it their bag of tricks to save the rigging somebody apparently set up for the election.

All you guys who are in your first class of Economics and Finance They Never Taught You in School, who are asking “what somebody?”, either keep your dial tuned to this station, or, just simply Follow The Money!

Hey! When Ron Paul talks about “printing money“, everybody that supports him ALREADY KNOWS he’s talking about MONEY SUPPLY, not printing presses!

Here’s LOOKING AT YOU, AARON TASK! —AND YOU KNOW THIS!

In fact, Ron Paul took note during a congressional hearing once that the Fed has stopped publishing their estimates of what they call “M3 money supply” which Aaron Task knows is more what Ron Paul is talking about when he says “printing money“, saying they could not estimate the figure anymore with sufficient accuracy. Ron Paul rightly observed that it’s a good guess that their real reason is that Americans would be shocked at the figures.

All the manipulations that Mr. Task listed that the Fed does to control the real money supply, that is what they do.

BUT HERE IS WHAT AARON TASK DELIBERATELY LEFT OUT, because I think he knows a little more than he is explaining, so I will “just explain it”.

The Fed DOES put out dollars in circulation now with electronic entries authorities by the selected persons at the Fed, and Quantitative Easing is exactly what is meant by “printing money”, meaning putting dollars into the money supply (now mostly electronic transfers anyway), which has the same effect as printing press dollar production, only worse and faster.

If buyers around the world were not eating up all this cash by using it to buy Treasury Bonds and other means, the dollar would have crashed a long time ago.

The big money players around the world have lost confidence in the stability of the dollar, and the “full faith and credit of the United States” has lost its polish, and even the guys in charge of the American economy (the administration) and the guys in charge of manipulating our money (the Fed) and the central banks around the world, have said they need to study a transition to another worldwide currency.

But they are already married to the dollar, they have gobs and gobs of dollars, and they want to get their money’s worth, so they are riding out the dollar, this “green paper pig”, a  balloon they know is about to go bust, while they work out how to do it. And whatever deal they cut, we all know that what they have in mind is making Americans pay, the American economy. They may market it here in the USA as a “tax on the rich”, but they know it will be our blood, sweat and tears they will  require.

The only presidential candidate telling the truth to the American people about all this is of course RON PAUL. The detractors are committing big sins of omission, in what they are NOT saying, what they are hiding from you. (Here’s looking at YOU, Aaron Task).

And the truth is, that every increase in the money supply is grand theft larceny from the pockets of the poor and the middle class. That’s inflation, a word that does not do justice to the value it robs from the dollars the poor use to buy food and gasoline and pay rent. This is the kind of deceitful theft that the Bible calls a “false balance”. The “false balance” was what merchants of old used to cheat their customers, like pretending they were selling you a pound of wheat when the stone they used in the balance was actually lighter than a pound and the buyer was getting less that he was told.

Proverbs 11:1 “A false balance is abomination to the LORD: but a just weight is his delight.” (Proverbs 11:1).

John 8:32  And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

New Study Says: Belief in evolution boils down to a gut feeling

January 22, 2012

Belief in evolution boils down to a gut feeling – Technology & science – Science – LiveScience – msnbc.com:
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/46076744/ns/technology_and_science-science/#.TxwBSiNM5eo

It takes a lot of faith to believe in spontaneous undirected evolution, both physical and biological, and most especially spontaneous abiogenesis.

After all, a digitized memory and logic system that beats every sophisticated computing system that all of mankind’s engineers have been able to come up with, more complex than the Internet, with feedback systems, self-reproductive and everything else, is a thing of awe even for the skeptics who think it all just grew out of the mud. Or something.

“Gut feeling” is right, but gut feelings are so deceiving, as some of the smarter-than-thou crowd like to point out about believers. But Bible believers have known this for like, forever:

The heart [is] deceitful above all [things], and desperately wicked: who can know it? – Jeremiah 17:9

Of course as happens in the case of strong deceit, the deceived are convinced it is the believer who is under strong delusion:

2 Thessalonians 2:10: And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

Even the abiogenesis believers have a hard time with life springing from non-life and they know that it is such a testimony against Darwinism that they are now trying to decouple it from Darwinian evolution and claiming it has nothing to do with the issue.

Well, then, they lost the argument there. Because in every book on evolution, they always talk about how it started without design. This is completely ON PURE FAITH, based on superstitious whim.

Because the alternative is to admit there might be a higher power over them.

At least the pantheistic New Agers are more reasonable, realizing that there is too much organization and order in the universe for it to be random spontaneity.

God’s Word is Not Ambiguous!

January 18, 2012

God is God, and he said he would not let his word return void, and his word says “no prophecy of the scripture is of private interpretation” (another verse I see that is watered down in newer versions). And “God is not the author of confusion”, and that’s in the same scripture where Paul emphasized the importance of having interpretations for any message given in tongues, and having that interpretation in the language that anyone present can understand who is not yet a believer.

That means us before we believed, too.

God is also “not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err”. (Matthew 12:27) Jesus Christ had just told them “…Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God?” (verse 24).

For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.– Matthew 5:18

Now when Jesus said “one jot or one tittle”, did he mean the little marks that make up the Hebrew letters? I like Russ Humphreys’ approach he uses when he’s interpreting Genesis: a “straightforward” approach rather than a “literal” approach.

Of course we all know that Jesus did not mean inflection marks, accents, or the pieces that make up the parts of the Hebrew alphabet or any other alphabet. He was obviously and in context talking about the most microscopic of minutiae of the meanings of the “law and the prophets”.

So it’s a ridiculous defense (call in my opinion but consider it) to say the “fundamentals are preserved, but not the details”.

It is ridiculous that God is a dead God or went to sleep, or even that he does not care about the least jot or tittle of his word, to preserve it to the end.

It is also lacking in intellectual honesty in my opinion to pretend that there is any solid authoritative unit source somewhere, that is an exact replica of the “original autograph” jots and tittles and marks, and it is more than reasonable to assume that we do not know the “original languages” even as much as the KJB translators.

Now, since we have a God of the living, not of the dead, and He is not the author of confusion, and the prophecies are NOT of “private interpretation”, and if the jots and tittles of meaning are important, then from these solid-rock premises we get from the Bible itself, we can conclude that God wants a clear standard TODAY for a source from which we can find those jots and tittles WITHOUT AMBIGUITY.

This is confidence in God. Trusting in Greek and Hebrew dictionaries and lectionaries and conflicting arguments about which originals we should use, this is confidence in man and his reasoning.

But we know for solid-rock fact, we KNOW that GOD KNEW that English would dominate the entire modern world. He KNEW that English would be the international world-wide language for culture, diplomacy, business, science, engineering, the control tower in every single international airport in the whole world, and even computer hacking, according to Eric Raymond, Open Source guru, who after much badgering by NON-English speaking hackers, included English as a requirement for anybody who wants to be a computer hacker. (That’s “hacker” in its “good” meaning, not “cracker”).:

http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/hacker-howto.html#skills4

God setteth up one and putteth down another. If he intervenes in the affairs of men and answers petitions and promises to obey his own Word when we claim his Word to him, then the most important thing he is going to do is to carry his Word, including jots and tittles, into the 21st century.

I don’t care whether you call it “inspiration”, or “intervention”, or just plain “the end from the beginning”, God has one standard for the 21st century for us to measure claims of Biblical teachers, and once you realize these truths and start looking for it, the answer is so obvious that there is no argument.

Meaning you are either “Greek and Hebrew” and man’s wisdom, or you are KJBO.

Religion, churches, Jesus, and faith

January 15, 2012

Great poem and presentation by this guy Jefferson. It has enough views it can count as “viral”:
[youtube http://youtube.com/w/?v=1IAhDGYlpqY&sns=em]

I like that verse at the end:

But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. – Romans 4:5

That’s they way it has always been, too, because:

[It is of] the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.–Lamentations 3:22

..and nobody ever earned any spiritual points from God through his righteousness or obedience (What, did you think they were better than us, Mr. Scofield?):

Psalm 14:3.The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, [and] seek God.
4.They are all gone aside, they are [all] together become filthy: [there is] none that doeth good, no, not one.

Jesus called the leaders of the most respected religion of the day, “whited sepulchres” and “children of hell”, and they called him a prophet of Baal. The “Bereans” were “more noble” than the other guys, though.

Nicodemus blew the whistle on his fellow leaders of the Sanhedrin, the other “rulers of the Jews”:

The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.

Nicodemus said “we”, he did not say “I”. This exposes the lying hypocrites of the Pharisees, do not pull your punches, speak it plainly. The rulers of the Jews knew who Jesus was. They didn’t want a Messiah and here’s the proof. After Jesus rose Lazarus from the dead, some of the witnesses went and told the chief priests and the Pharisees:

John 11: 47 Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles.
48.If we let him thus alone, all [men] will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation.
53.Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death.

So maybe Jesus on the cross was talking about the ones who “[knew] not what they [did]”, so maybe he meant the Roman soldiers who had no clue..

One way to tell today that a Christian or a leader among Christians is of God is a clue Jesus gave us:

Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets. – Luke 6:26

Jesus held back on openly and strongly blasting the Pharisees until toward the end of his earthbound ministry, but Matthew 23 is one of the strongest blasts in the entire Bible against making temple worship your religion, and you’ll note that you don’t get too many sermons on that. You hear a lot more on the beatitudes.

No one ever earned righteousness or salvation, not even Job, God’s ” servant Job, that [there is] none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?” You have heard sermons quoting him, “Though he slay me yet I will trust him”, even as he refused to curse God and die.

And even as he protested to his friends that he didn’t know why he was hit with calamity, he said:

“If I justify myself, mine own mouth shall condemn me: [if I say], I [am] perfect, it shall also prove me perverse.” Job 9:20

Some people use the book of Romans to say that salvation by grace was some new thing and did not exist before Paul’s “revelation” (looking at you, Cyrus Scofield). But we see from Romans 3:12 that Paul’s new perspective was one he realized was always there in Psalm 14 before, which was emphasized by repetition in Psalm 53:

Psalm 14:2 The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, [and] seek God.
14:3 They are all gone aside, they are [all] together become filthy: [there is] none that doeth good, no, not one.
Romans 3:11 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
3:12 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

Thank God for the mercy he shows us, the grace, and the fact that he does not lay our sins to our charge when we accept his grace.

Psalm 103:14He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
15 For as the heaven is high above the earth, [so] great is his mercy toward them that fear him.
16 As far as the east is from the west, [so] far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

Jesus also said the actions of the religious rulers of the day testified to the fact that they were of their fathers that persecuted the prophets. He told us in Matthew 24 that there would be false prophets in the last day that would say Jesus is Christ but would deceive many (verse 5). And that was one of the first signs of the end that Christ gave to his disciples in that chapter. We are living in those last days.

Let us remember that Christ came to condemn no one, but through him we all might be saved.

Right after the famous John 3:16, the Bible summarized in one verse, Jesus said:

John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

We have a good concrete example of this in John 8, one that we would do well to pay attention to:

John 8:10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?
11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

The woman had broken sacred law, the ten commandments. Pastors preach on this passage and do get the point about forgiveness, and how Jesus Christ forgives sins, and does not require us to pay for them spiritually.

But sometimes we fail to apply the lesson very broadly. There is a better way to conquer sin that throwing stones or passing laws against sins that one commits against one’s own self. Rather than condemn them let us love them into the kingdom and learn how to say “Go and sin no more”. The one that loves more is the one that has been forgiven the most, not the one that the Pharisees are stoning to death.

It’s not the ones that yell insults at funerals who win souls, it’s the ones that take a man dying of AIDS into his arms and reassures him that even now, Jesus will forgive all and receive him into heaven if he will just accept him.

I John 4:8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
I John 4:16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
Micah 6:8 He hath shewed thee, O man, what [is] good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?

There is a time for everything, the scripture says in Ecclesiastes. Now is the time to tell the people that have been deceived in the pagan culture that surrounds us, that we love them, we as Christians do not mean them harm, but that we love our enemies.

We want to love the pagans and the Muslims into the kingdom, and like St. Francis, we would rather show the love of Christ than the sword of judgment. It is reported that he won the heart of the Sultan of Egypt. Francis of Assisi continues to be a testimony among Muslims today. On one missionary trip a Muslim began to get very angry upon learning that my missionary partner and I were Christians, and went on in crescendo until I mentioned that we had the Christianity of Francis.

“Be not overcome with evil but overcome evil with good.” This is how Son of Hamas was won, the son of one of the founders of Hamas, Mosab Hassan Yousef:

http://sonofhamas.com/

He now is one of the strongest witnesses for Christ, and one of the strongest testimonies against those who would wage a jihad against the entire world. Some Christian voice unfortunately are beating the war drums over the danger a “nuclear Iran” presents, but Mosab is an example of how hearts change. The love of Christ stopped gladiator sports in ancient Rome, stopped slavery in the earliest centuries after Christ, and made Christianity into one of the major faiths in the world today, and shamed the world into ending many other outrageous practices.

Mosab says that it was the Biblical passage where Christ says to “Love your enemies” that touched him, because he was repulsed by the brutal treatment in prison by Muslims of their fellow Muslims.

Let us live the love of Christ as he loved us even while we were yet sinners.

Abortion when the pregnant mother will die

When it is really and truly a definite choice of only one between the mother and the baby, the mother “wins”, especially if there are other children involved. That’s a miniscule fraction of one percentage, and is a totally different situation than the rest of them because of the fact that it has to do with saving lives. Save one or the other, the mother needs to take care of any other children she has, and may be able to have another baby.

But if it is a choice between killing the innocent baby or (something else that does not mean certain death for the mother), then murder is not an option. Saving the mother’s life is not murder in a case like the one described.

See a picture here of a baby at 20 weeks from conception, sucking his thumb:

Abortion is a practice that involves the baby more than anybody else, including the mother.
